FAQ

“Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_CLASS…” Help!

Make sure your new host is running PHP 5. Add this line to wp-config.php:

var_dump(PHP_VERSION);
How can I choose which thumbs to display?

You enter a search string (the thumbs are found using the search engine from deviantArt). You can read more about search options there.

Quick tips:
  • -in:scraps excludes scraps
  • boost:popular gets the most popular thumbs, instead of the newest
How can I modifify the carousel skin?

You can edit deviant-thumbs/inc/carousel/carousel.css.

Why isn’t the cache working?

Probably because your wp-uploads folder isn’t writable. You will have to chmod it to 757. If you don’t know how, read Changing File Permissions.
